It is so disappointing that our elected republicans are so compliant with the democrats’ nefarious agenda.

Good morning, yourself. Did you see Texas Tech’s old coach is at the U of Cincinnati now?

Good morning. I hope that there is nothing nefarious going on at St. Mary’s hospital. My husband is undergoing gall bladder surgery there at this very moment. I also have a DIL undergoing induced labor in Aiken, SC for her 5th child and my 12th grandchild. I’m just sitting by the phone worrying about both patients. My thoughts are exclusively on hospitals.

Anybody who wishes to toss out a prayer, or three, for my loved ones this AM will be sincerely appreciated.

I had mine out too, but it was a big deal. (at least to me) He’s been in the hospital since early Sun. morning on an antibiotic drip. I had mine done as an outpatient but suffered complications later. He has complicating heart problems, so surgery is always worrisome.

Good news from Aiken Regional hospital. My wisp of a DIL just gave birth to a 9 lb 1 oz. baby boy named Daniel Michael. Curly headed, strawberry blonde. Since they already have 2 boys and 2 girls, it is nice that he now has a real name, rather than “Tie Breaker”! So that makes 4 granddaughters and 8 grandsons for us. And 4 males to carry on the last name. It’s a good thing that they induced her because she’s just a tiny little girl. I can’t believe she had a 9 lb baby!

Now, if can can just get some good news about my husband....

The fact that Obama’s gregarious
Obscures his agenda, nefarious
He’s happy and gay
While he takes rights away
A contradiction he must find hilarious

There’s a hospital in Pittsburgh on Aiken street, which I always found mildly amusing.

What do you do when atheists sue to make you remove your nativity?

Park it.

The doctor just called. My husband did fine through the surgery. THe gall bladder was massively inflamed so it NEEDED to come out. Everything else looked fine. He’s gone to recovery and will be back in his room about 10:00 AM. So, I have to get my rear in gear and get over to the hospital. Thanks to all for helping me to suffer through this waiting.

Not even really offended either. The atheists are from Wisconsin. They can’t even see the nativity from there.

Thanks.

Re: the moving nativity. Can’t you see this happening in a big city where they have parking regulations? Around the block every 3 hours, or so, to take a slightly different parking place! Sounds like a plan.

Which makes me grateful for Wisconsin. At least outside of Madison, we don’t have problems with Nativity scenes. I think I’ll visit all of them around here out of gratitude. And the menorahs too.

There is a large, electrified Menorah in the lobby of St. mary’s hospital right next to the statue of the nun who founded the place! Nobody objects. In Grafton, there is another huge lighted Menorah right next to the annual Nativity display in the center of town. A mile away, there is a LIVE Nativity nightly in fromt of a Lutheran church.

Despite my crickety knees, I shall struggle to get mine out of the basement and on display for the season. I don’t think I’ll put up a tree this year, but I’ll do the Nativity scene.

Who knows? Next year, Obama’s minions could ban all such displays! Fie on them! Now that would be NEFARIOUS!

I guess we need to pay more attention to the nefarious objectives the atheists are plotting. It appears that the “unchurched” have become one of the largest political influences in the US and have largely been responsible for the recent pathetic election results.

Live nativities are the normal “workaround” for nativity bans. Can’t ban people peacefully gathering.

I can’t say he was wrong.

The Trib still runs his column. I may not agree with his protectionism or anti-Israelism, but he has valid points on many issues.

Nefarious

The name given to a large upright wheel at state and county fairs. It was nefarious when several riders at the top upchucked their cotton candy and corn dogs on the folks below at a state fair.

Now that was a nefarious wheel. Some remember it as the chunky wheel or the “I wish I hadn’t looked up” wheeel.
